I remember the morning…

Woman at the tomb- by Fr  Sieger Köder

Mary Magdalene may have reminisced: –

‘I remember that morning. With other women, my sisters, we went to the tomb. Jesus was not there. We ran to the Upper Room as the angel told us. But my heart was sad. We hadn’t seen him. The desire to see him burnt in my heart.

Then, there in the garden I heard his voice,’ ‘Mary!’ Called by name, I had no further doubts: ‘Master!’I had gone with the oil to anoint the dead and instead I met the Living Lord. And so began a radically new experience, because the Lord takes you out of your narrow sense of security and sends you forth, if you trust His word. It was like getting to know him all over again: he went ahead of us and sometimes we had difficulty in recognising Him in the signs of His presence.

So we learned to seek Him in the Eucharist, in the Word, in the poor, in the community and in the world. Fear gripped us now and then. But His word guided us and His promise resounded in our lives: ‘ I will send you my Spirit…and He will lead you to truth. I will be with you always’.

The Risen Lord alive through the power of the Spirit is the source of my life, my joy and my peace. Every day the Christian community lives in certainty that His love has gone before us: our experience of Him enables us to see His face when we meet Him in daily situations.
